On complaints about Reason Rally speakers

It’s 5:30am, I’m boarding a flight in 10 minutes, and I’m typing this on my phone, so I’ll be brief: What PZ said? Bullshit. Why? Hemant nailed it. I also can’t speak for the Rally as a whole, but I can speak from my personal experience. I’m on the board of the Reason Rally as …
